SUMMARY- This is a book of small motifs like the ones shown on the cover. She gives you 26 basic small motifs, then goes back through each of the 26 and gives you variations - mostly different threads and adding beads for different effects. THEN she takes them and incorporates them into pieces of jewelry so you can see how they can be used. All of that is the first 33 pages of the book. The rest of the book is the strong visual tutorials we've come to expect from all the Japanese tatting books.
